J.C. Hutchins is the pseudonym for American podcast novelist and journalist Chris Hutchins.[1] Hutchins is best known for his 7th Son series.


Hutchins began podcasting in 2006 after receiving multiple rejections from various agents,[2] with 7th Son being his first podcast release. Shortly thereafter in 2007, St. Martin's Press picked up the print rights to 7th Son and Dark Arts,[3] an interactive novel.[4]


Books published in print[edit]

  • 7th Son: Descent (2009)
  • Personal Effects: Dark Arts (2009)

Podcast novels[edit]

  • 7th Son: Descent
  • 7th Son: Deceit
  • 7th Son: Destruction
  • Personal Effects: Sword of Blood


Critical reception to Hutchins' work has been mixed to positive, with Publishers Weekly praising both the first novel in the 7th Son series and Dark Arts[5][6] and Kirkus Reviews panning both.[7][8] The Celebrity Cafe reviewed Dark Arts, praising the story but stating that the extra elements detracted from the story instead of enhancing it.[9]
